COAT OF MANY COLORS


In the wake of the night stood an
oil lamp

A butterfly sprawling around it
like a wounded snake and i watched with amusement the beautiful colors of her
feathers just like that of a rainbow
I beckoned on myself with a
thought of how life would have been beautiful like a coat of many colors
I wished life could have held so
many beautiful things without fault
I wished the journey of life
shouldn’t have held any difficulty for humanity
I wish I could live a life just as
the colorful butterfly in this hurdles of life and still not get hurt by its
events
But life isn’t like that
For a soul to journey through,
there lies the vague promise of perfection without risk. Its course, just like
gold passing through the fire of the goldsmith
Oh, how I wish to live in the
serenity of life just like the butterfly with no worries round the fire.
